Some have performed the trick to perfection such as Anderson University football player Dontez Hines and Manvel High School cheerleader Ariel (pictured)

  • Baffling videos have taken social media by storm, people seemingly walking in mid-air by stepping over an invisible box
  • The premise involves stepping onto the 'box' with one foot and leaping over it with the other foot
  • Some have performed it to perfectio sich as Anderson University football player Dontez Hines (left) and Manvel High School cheerleader Ariel 
  • Others hilariously fail, tripping over their own feet or even falling to the ground

  • So the person hops forward on one foot while keeping the other fixed in mid-air

Baffling videos have taken social media by storm, people seemingly walking in mid-air by stepping over an invisible box.

The premise involves stepping onto an 'invisible box' with one foot and leaping over it with the other foot.

Some have performed the trick to perfection such as  Anderson University football player Dontez Hines and Manvel High School cheerleader Ariel.

Others hilariously fail, tripping over their own feet or even falling to the ground.  

However, many Internet users have been left dazed and confused wondering how the trick actually works.

Everyone is trying the latest trend: Invisible box challenge!

The invisible box trick seems to go back a while, with a few posts on Reddit asking how to pull it off. 

In a video posted to YouTube, dancer Marcos Grados, from Guadalajara, Mexico, is seen completing the move during a performance.

In one of the first instances seen of this trick, back in August 2014, the video has been viewed almost 889,000 times.

The basis of the trick is all about jumping with one foot while keeping your 'stepping' foot still.

So the performer has to essentially hop forward on one foot while keeping the other fixed in mid-air.

Last month, Mens Health fitness editor Ebenezer Samuel broke the move down one leg at a time.

The leg that is stepping on the box uses a great deal of hip flexor, glute and core stability. 

'All [the] hip stabilizers on the right side are firing on overtime to hold that hip in position,' he said.

'You'll notice [the] body rotates toward the leg on the step as well; there's a ton of oblique and ab stability maintaining that position.'

But the moving leg that hops forward faces a greater challenge. 'Very explosive hip flexor, abdominal and glute strength is what is driving the leg up and over the box,' Samuel said.  

This not the first trend to go viral. Other challenges include the planking challenge where participants must lie face down in odd locations,  the cinnamon challenge where participants eat a spoonful of ground cinnamon in under 60 seconds without drinking anything or the mannequin challenge where people remaind frozen like mannequins while a song plays in the background.
